A fascinating account of five turning points that shaped the course of musical history by the popular music broadcaster and composer, Howard Goodall.
Howard Goodall is an Emmy, BRIT and BAFTA award-winning composer of choral music, stage musicals, film and TV scores - among them Red Dwarf, QI and Blackadder - as well as a distinguished broadcaster and the author of Big Bangs: The Story of Five Discoveries that Changed Musical History. In recent years he has been England's first ever National Ambassador for Singing, the Classical Brit Composer of the Year, and Classic FM's Composer-in-Residence. He was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2011 New Year Honours for services to music education.
"Goodall has a prodigious gift for gathering information. People who know nothing about music will learn a lot here" Sunday Tribune "Intelligent, infectious" Observer "Writing a breezy history of music is a tough nut to crack, but Goodall manages it" Independent
